Every one knows the therapeutic effects of dance and music. But ICCRdoes art also have healing powers? According to the artist-couple Paresh Tiwari and Swati Modi of Jabalpur, the colours used in paintings and the movements associated with kathak together soothe the mind and the body. The exhibition Chitra se nritya tak which impressed art connoisseurs of the city for a quite a few days at Kala Bhavan, ICCR art gallery demonstrates this effect.

"Electrical bioforce of a Kathak dancer reflects itself through different hastaks and mudras during a performance which awakens the Bhava-samvedana of a viewer up to the metaphysical level," says Paresh Tiwari. His paintings use the Kathak movements as a metaphysical perception, in this case the movements of his dancer-wife Swati Modi.

The paintings are done in colours of the five elements of nature
( Agni, Akash, Jal, Prithvi and Vayu) to produce the spiritual as well as the remedial effect. The use of blue (representing almighty), green (life), yellow (prosperity), white (buddhi), red (rajas element), orange (equality) and violet (as balancing of the vikaras - disorders) in his paintings are a result of deep meditation. The paintings bear the logo of Shree Kathak Peeth (the dance institute at Jabalpur where he is the director) and are done with the blessings of their spiritual guru. The merits of this unique combination of paintings and dance, rooted in the metaphysical and scriptural traditions, are manifold - provided a person watches it positively.

A viewer has to look at them for a few minutes every day for the desired effect. The paintings are said to help increasing brain functioning, logic and concentration and controlling physical disorders (body problems), stress, anger etc. They also reportedly help in developing purity of thought and mental peace.

The beneficial effects of these paintings have been proved, according to the painter. Quite a few paintings that are remedial have been sent to different parts of the world.
